And Now the End is Near…

So another year comes to an end and what a fabulous and great year it has been. It is time to say goodbye to a brilliant Year 6 who begin their new adventures at secondary school in September. Good luck Year 6! Some of our lovely nursery children are moving on to reception classes across the city so good luck to them to in their new schools. We are also saying good bye to Grace in year 3 as she moves to a lovely little school in the country. Good luck Grace.

Please Remember to…

As the end or term is now almost upon us, please remember to take PE kits home, check lost property, children’s drawers, phones and other items left at the office, scooters, bikes and anything else you can think of and take it all home please. You would be staggered by the amount of things we send to charity at the end of a year. If you leave it here it will be gone by the time September comes around.
Please also return all library books before the summer holidays.

Years 5 and 6 Music Festival

Years 5 and 6 celebrated the end of their learning journey by holding a music festival. The event took place on Thursday afternoon at the Friends Meeting House in Ship Street. The children raised £80 which will be donated to Brighton Oasis Project a charity which supports women and children affected by substance misuse.

World War One Centenary

Children across the school have been learning more about World War One and its impact on people’s lives. Children have taken part in activities, found out about their own families links with the war and visited Brighton Museum.

Stunning SATs Results.

The end of Key Stage 2 SATs are not the be all and end all and certainly do not provide the full picture of a child’s abilities and interests. However the children do work really hard to achieve better than their best in the tests. We are so proud of each and every one of them not just because they have done so well but because of their positive attitude to learning and to school generally. To celebrate their achievements I would like to share with you this year’s SATs results which are:
Reading:97% Level 4+ 63% Level 5, Maths: 97% Level 4+ 53% Level 5. Well done Ms Moriarty and Year 6

Meet the Teacher

Children today met their new teacher and teaching assistant. This morning they left assembly with their new teacher and teaching assistant and spent time in their new classrooms.
